Man of Steel Official Trailer

Posted December 12, 2012 12:30 AM by Webmaster

Warner 90th AnniversaryWarner Bros. has issued a new theatrical trailer for director Zack Snyder's Man of Steel, the highly anticipated reboot of the Superman film franchise starring Henry Cavill as Clark Kent/Kal-El, Michael Shannon as villainous Kryptonian General Zod, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Russell Crowe as Jor-El, Laurence Fishburne as Daily Planet editor Perry White, and Kevin Costner and Diane Lane as Jonathan and Martha Kent.

In the pantheon of superheroes, Superman is perhaps the most recognized and revered character of all time. In Snyder's Man of Steel, Clark Kent is a young twentysomething journalist who feels alienated by powers beyond anyone's imagination. Transported to Earth years ago from Krypton, an advanced alien planet, Clark struggles with the ultimate question: why am I here? Shaped by the values of his adoptive parents, Clark soon discovers that having super abilities means making very difficult decisions. But when the world needs stability the most, it comes under attack. Will his abilities be used to maintain peace or ultimately used to divide and conquer? Clark must become the hero known as Superman, not only to shine as the world's last beacon of hope but to protect the ones he loves.

Man of Steel is set to arrive in theaters on June 14th, 2013.

Can't freaking wait till next year!! Looks like Henry Cavill will be the best Superman since Christopher Reeve (but definitely not better than the late Mr. Reeve), and that's saying a lot right there.

Make a fantasy character into a dark, gritty, realistic-ish film and audiences today will eat it up regardless how good or bad the film ends up. Because that is what's cool now. Can't wait til 5-10 years when people are exhausted and so over this approach.

@Debbie Downer

It's not a question of making something dark and gritty. It's about creating characters that have human issues. I for one am interested in the portrayal of super-humans that have faults and problems. Decisions in the real world are never cut and dry. Characters that are aware that they are treading a thin line between good and bad are more interesting than those that just come in and save the day. There's a great line in the trailer - Clark: Should I have let them die, to which his dad responds "Maybe". This is not dark and gritty it's just real. It’s easier to stand behind a character that had everything going against him, but still made the right decisions, than those that never faced a moral dilemma.

If after weeks your still pondering on the important questions that were raised, then great that's what cinema is all about - Thought provoking entertainment (TPE).

"It's about creating characters that have human issues. I for one am interested in the portrayal of super-humans that have faults and problems."

Yeah, that's part of why I read comic books. Characters that have human issues that resonate with me, but in a fantasy setting. You can still make an intelligent film that is also light and fun, instead of dark and grim.

It's looks very interesting, This two and a half minute trailer look better than all of Superman Returns, so that definitely a plus. Plus General Zod looks badass. (I don't think Michael Shannon gonna top Terence Stamp's Zod though.) Can't wait to see it.. "Kneel Before Zod"....

Superman is not supposed to be dark and gritty. He's supposed to be a beacon for hope of a brighter future. To stand for truth and justice and fight for it no matter how hard and tough it may be. Superman is not mortal he's the best of us and inspires those who admire him be better people because of it. He saves kittens out of trees, fixes flat tires, fghts corruption in the senate. This person I see contemplating or simply doubting himself is not Superman! If he's on a bus and suddenly that bus crashes into water, he'll save the kids without a second thought. Superman will not ever debate whether or not it's the right thing to do. Also Jonathan Kent would never speak to his son that saving kids is wrong in any such manner. He would understand that his son did what was right no questions. I'm sure this will be a good movie perhaps a great popcorn movie but it is without a doubt not going to be a great Superman movie.

If the film itself is as good as this trailer, it'll be the best Superman film ever.

Sad to see some bashing it as "dark and gritty," when in fact it simply has a more serious tone than previous Superman films.

For starters Clark was just a kid when his Dad said "Maybe" to his question because he didn't have his secret identity yet and saved those kids as Clark. I doubt Jonathan would say that when Clark was older as Superman. He just wanted to protect Clark until he could be Superman.
Plus give it a chance,don't put it down till you've seen it!

Anyone that doesn't think this movie is going to be awesome is crazy. Zack Snyder is obviously a very talented director. Watchman is one of the best films of the last 10 years. 300 was a ground breaking action movie, which has been much emulated and Sucker Punch (extended cut), while having very convoluted storyline was still an impressively made and entertaining move. If Man of Steel has a good script then it will be epic.

WOW... this flick looks simply amazing. Can't wait to check it out. As much as I loved Superman: The Movie (even that flick has shown it's age for sure) It's awesome to see such a great character finally get the modern day treatment it deserves!!!

@ the Debbie Downer's and the trans8010's of the world.

How do you know that this Superman seen here in Man of Steel is 'not' going to be a beacon of hope for a brighter future... and how do you know that he won't stand for truth and justice and fight for it no matter what? How do you know he won't inspire us? This trailer doesn't say that he won't at at all. Look, Superman has needed an injection of something different for quite some time now as his past flicks simply became too stale and far too silly to fully resonate with a modern day world. Having him as a young man struggle with how different he is... and having his Earthly Father love him so much that he only wants and desires to protect him as a parent no matter what... isn't overly dark and gritty like you say... it's simply much more realistic and evokes and injects much needed emotion into a character that has fallen behind the times when it comes to the movie superheroes.

Now, If you're going to tell me that the Superman of the 'comic books' didn't have moments of struggle and doubt about who he is and the responsibility that was placed upon his sholders... you simply haven't read all the comics then. Because he did. I know... because I've read them. Even Christopher Reeve's Superman in the 1978 film had moments of struggle as a young boy and man.

If you want a goofy light hearted Superman movie filled with slap stick and constant attempts at jokes (that makes no money at the box office)... simply pop in a copy of Superman III with Richard Pryor... you can get all you want. As for me... I'll take Zack Snyder's new approach any day!

I'm super psyched!!! For all those who have issues about the recent comic books becoming films and how studios are destroying these comics, you're all entitled to your opinion. But before dropping your deuce on a film before even seeing it, just remember at the end of the day; it's a film.

I miss the simple days of my childhood when I could watch a shitty film and think that it was the greatest thing ever, only to revisit it with a more critical comprehension and mar that memory by asking myself "WTF was I thinking!?!".

I am grateful that studios (even though they lack imagination and are money grubbing bastards) are making these films. I am happy that my son can enjoy the superheroes that I grew up with, even with the modern day values and takes of today. The world is changing and so are it's heroes...

To all who are judging this upcoming movie based solely on viewing the few released teasers/trailers, take a breath and relax before composing your thoughts for this blog. Teasers/trailers are created from snippets of the filmed sequences. But the snippets are rarely in order, complete, or in context. Pa Kent's answer of "Maybe" to Clark's query appears truncated. Sometimes snippets are not in the finished movie.
The movie has an impressive pedigree, but sometimes the most ambitious projects with big names attached have stunk. (Remember "Ishtar" or "Waterworld"?) We all have yet to see this Nolan/Snyder collaboration, and the performances of the actors. (Remember Marlon Brando's non-stellar portrayal of Jor-El?)

Let's be honest the first superman was pretty damn good, from Gene Hackman to John William's score, but it was more a campy movie. This obviously looks like to be similar to batman begins and looks awesome, especially Michael Shannon as General Zod. Let's just not compare these movies because they are on complete opposite ends of the spectrum.

Finally, a good-looking Lois Lane that can act!

Trailer reminded me of Gladiator and the trailer for Superman Returns. Looks like this film is gonna be all depth and dreary story, until a crazy balls-out action finale. I guess that's good!

So we go from cheerful Superman (Reeve), to stalker Superman (Routhe) and now to sad Superman (Cavill).

So tired of having origin stories over and over and over and over. We're not talking about some obscure D-list character from a one-shot in the '70s. It's Superman, for Christ's sake. Everyone who can speak English and afford a movie ticket knows who Superman is. If they don't, at this point, screw 'em. Superman has been around for EIGHTY YEARS. It's not unreasonable to expect your audience to know a tiny bit of back-story going in.

If you see a war movie, they don't have to show you the history of soldiering leading all the way up to the present day. You just have to get on with the story, and if people don't know what soldiers are then they're idiots. I don't understand why they can't do that with comic movies. Can you imagine if every issue of every comic had to spend the first few pages going back over the origin story again, just in case someone started reading with that issue? It's absurd. But they do it in movies and we're supposed to eat it up.

To those naysayers bashing on Jonathan Kent telling his son that 'maybe' letting the other children in the bus die would've been the best course of action, I say this. Imagine Clark is your son, you've raised him, you love him. You know that if the government discovered that you were harboring a space alien with super-human powers, they would rip him away from you, and stick him in some lab. Remember, even though Clark is Superman, he was still your average kid on an emotional level, and being ripped away from your family would be a pretty emotionally damaging thing. So, Jonathan Kent was speaking from a place of emotion, not logic and not morality.

This is why I love this 'realistic' approach to Superman. We kind of got this with the Hancock film, though it was more tongue-in-cheek. The Dark Knight films were great, and grounded, but Bruce Wayne didn't have super-powers, so it was missing a level of complexity that Man of Steel will have. I can't wait.

When it comes to these comic book movies, it usually comes down to asking oneself "Does it feel like (insert appropriate character)?" The final answer will be there on release day, but for me this trailer does not make me hopeful. This feels like one of those "what if" one-shot comics. Maybe a neat idea but not exactly faithful to the myth.

Please stop with the negative comments. It's the 21st century, it's time for Superman to evolve to it. Yes it's a bit dark and gritty but that doesn't mean Supes won't come out of it with a glimmer of hope. Snyder and Nolan won't kill the overall perception of Superman. They're just going to make him relatable so he seems to have human qualities, such as deciding what to do with his powers as shown in the trailer.

It's ok guys. Watch the movie first before you judge it. You might be surprised how it turns out!

@Dreambo - Would you rather have Kate Bosworth and the plot of the film being a villian using the crystals of Krypton to build a continent that will wipe out most of North America? As for everyone complaining the film is too dark, etc. You ever think maybe Superman's world is dark and he has to struggle to become that ray of hope? As for Amy Adams she is a top notch actress and will be better than Bosworth. Comparing this Superman to Reeve's is impossible because of the styles. Reeves was cheesy and comical especially in the terrible 3 and 4th films. This one is darker and more human. Watch the film. You sound like all the people upset with the new Star Trek films

The main complaint I have with these reboots is that there is no originality. Here's the recipe for the genre "trilogy": re-do the origin story by making it darker (i.e., pile on a lot of Psych 101 angst); do a sequel where our hero no longer wants the job (thus violating the essence of heroism); finish off whatever goodwill you lost in the sequel by throwing in everything but the kitchen sink to produce a bloated mess viewers mistake as "epic." It's lazy, cookie-cutter, paint-by-numbers movie-making. But it's new and shiny and Hollywood's bow to service a new generation (i.e., wallet theft) so they get away with it.

Superman is not "dark and gritty" and I resent Zack Snyder trying to make it so. With Batman, you can do that because of the kind of character he has always been. But, Superman has always been a foundation for hope and inspiration and I'm simply offended that, and I can already tell, that this has Christopher Nolan's nasty frakking fingerprints all over this film.

Was I impressed with the trailer? Sure. But I hate what they have done with this film because it is not Superman, it's like some alternate bizarro version of the character, and I'm referring to the trailer, not the movie yet because it's not out yet.
